Carroll expansion parking lot to open on Wednesday, October 26

The Carroll Lot (the new parking lot on the former site of the Bohannon Center) will open on Wednesday, October 26, 2011, adding approximately 200 new parking spaces.

As the Bohannon site restoration and Hamlin Quad enhancement project enters Phase II of the three-phase project, Main Drive will close between the Dolan Science Center and Administration Drive. It will be re-graded and paved in the area adjacent to the new surface lot (Carroll Lot). During this phase, two-way traffic between the Dolan Center and Administration Drive will be maintained and directed through the new lot. As a part of Phase II, sod will be laid on Hamlin Quad.

The final phase of the project, requiring the closing of Administration Drive for paving and connections to the new surface lot, is scheduled for early November. The rainy weather has delayed the schedule by several weeks and continues to be a challenge. The project is scheduled to be completed by the third week in November. Additional updates will be posted to Inside JCU on a regular basis.

As always when driving across campus, please proceed cautiously and observe the speed limit.

Thank you for your patience as we make these improvements to the campus.
